Beauty stereotypes and myths have been believed by many people since long time ago! Although behind any granny’s tip there is always the truth, it’s always better to take care of your skin in the proper way since it is like your “business card” when you meet others.
To have healthy looking face skin and to prevent blemishes, it’s necessary to do the right practices by avoiding common false myths. How to recognize them? Let PJ list these common myths below.
* Face cleansing in the evening is the most important
False! Your skin begins and completes the regeneration process at night while you are sleeping. Great amount of sebum, toxins and dead cells will be removed during this period. That is why it is essential to clean your face in the morning as soon as you wake up. Perhaps, you can also accompany the treatment with a fresh glass of water and a piece of your favourite fruit to ensure good hydration.
* Makeup should be removed before going to sleep
Yes or no? No. Makeup should actually be removed as soon as you arrive at home to allow the skin to re-oxidise and eliminate the daily stress. Not only that, makeup removal will also allow your night cream application to perform its beauty benefits at maximum (For this, you must apply it before going to bed).
* Cotton pad for cleansing is ideal
Cotton pad wipes impurities but it doesn’t dissolve it! As a result, using it on your skin during face cleansing will only move the dirt from one place to another. However, the solution is simple. Apply the cleanser with your fingertips or better, use a brush with soft bristles to massage your face with delicate rotating movements for about 3-4 minutes.
* Oily skin should be cleaned often with strong products
No! If you clean it often, it will feel attacked and react by making more sebaceous glands. This effect is called rebound. In brief, the skin at first reacts well. However, after some time, it immediately returns to the starting point and then worsens rapidly. The right way to purify is by cleaning it with a delicate product such as cleansing milk, mousse or gel with astringent effect, applied twice daily on the mentioned skin. Avoid using too strong product or worse, doing-it-yourself.
* Anti-aging cream should be applied when the first wrinkles start to appear
One of the most common false myths is that if you start using anti-aging face cream too soon, your skin will get used to it and the cream will no longer be effective at the time you really need it. Wrong! Anti-aging creams must be used as early as possible to prevent the appearance of wrinkles and premature skin imperfection. Initially, less strong products are preferred, but in any case, there is no risk to begin the beauty treatment sooner. On the other hand, anti-aging products will only benefit you!
* Toner is optional
Absolutely false! Toner is important because it completes the cleansing process by bringing the skin back to its natural PH and helping to prepare your face skin for the other products application that you use daily. The Revitalizing Tonic of Petit Jardin Milano performs this action well.
With the presence of refreshing organic Aloe Vera, Wheat Germ Oil, Hyaluronic Acid, Chamomile and Calendula, the product will make the skin compact and close its pores, leaving it clean, velvety, toned and silky. Just put a small amount on a cotton pad and apply it gently on your face. You will see the difference.
